guest post ~ inês

i was so excited to have my inês over, she’s actually much more than just my sister, she’s my friend, and also some kind of a daughter – we are 15 years apart!  surprisingly she is a great actress, ubber stylish and has an amazing blog (the pop up store), where she sells her fashion finds.
what do you think makes turks and caicos (providenciales) so special?
This might sound silly, but I think one of the things that makes Provo so special is the fact that there is always enough of everything for everyone! Let me explain: there’s always enough beach for everyone, it’s never crowded! There’s always another restaurant to try out! Always more sea to explore! Always more coral to find! Always more activities to do (parasailing, horse-back riding, going to the Conch Farm, seeing the glow-worms)! Always more seashells to pick! Always more hotels to visit! Always more island to explore! Always more of everything to do! There are so many different things to do, that your visit to Provo can be catered to your own taste. Your personal experience of Provo will ALWAYS be different from someone else’s visit!
But the fact that the beaches are NEVER crowded has to be what most impressed me!
what were your favorite things to do whilst on island?
Obviously diving! I got my PADI Open Water Diver license, and enjoyed every dive til the last breath! I went diving in Five Cays and French Cay;  next time I’m over I’ll have to visit all the other diving sites!
would you recommend to a friend?
I would (and do!) most definitely recommend Providenciales to a friend! However, I also recommend that you do your homework before coming! Your stay will be a lot more enjoyable if you know where the best beaches are, which are the best restaurants, what the best activities are, so you can make the best out of them!

guest post ~ lila

lila is, in real life, my dear mum, i have previously shared a few things about her stay (here and here), and i can’t think of someone who enjoyed herself as much in provo. in every corner of the island she could see the beauty of it, the beaches, the well taken care gardens, the variety of sea shells. today she is sharing a little of her point of view with you –

what do you think makes turks and caicos (providenciales) so special?

I was in Provo for two weeks, and I think it was Paradise: the weather is good , the beaches are immense with not many people, or no one, the water is  transparent, in different colours of green, turquoise and blue, it is fresh, not cold or warm, the sand is thin and white. Besides, it is a quiet island, with no traffic, with restaurants to go by the sea, never crowded, the food is varied, and so many other things to do.
what were your favorite things to do whilst on island?
Snorkeling, specially in Coral Garden. Walking on the beach while listening to music on my ipod.  Driving around the island and discovering different beautiful beaches, the Bight, Emerald Point, Long Bay, Pelican beach…we counted ten, each nicer than the other. Going to Iguana island with the kayak. Seeing the world  underwater, on a trip with the Undersea Explorer semi sub boat. Having a drink at Grace Bay Club, at the sunset. Dinning at Amanyara (expensive). Going to Conch Shack and try some fried  conch. Having lunch at Somewhere,  a very nice  restaurant at Coral Garden’s. And, above all, the great surprise Joana and James organized, two days at Parrot Cay. That was fabulous!

would you recommend to a friend?

Of course, but not less than ten days. So that they have time to go to those wonderful beaches, and to do many of the different programs we wanted to do, also parasailing, body board, horse riding, etc. It´s worth it!!!!!!!

guest post ~ natasha & adriano

natasha and adriano live in new york and they came over to turks and caicos for a long weekend. it was great having them, showing them around and going out for drinks and dinner!

what do you think makes turks and caicos (providenciales) so special?

By far the best beach with a perfect white sand and crystal clear, turquoise sea. I know this answer is a cliche but it truly is a definition of this beautiful island.


what were your favorite things to do whilst on island?

While staying in Provo i just wanted to relax and enjoy by the beach. A boat trip for conch fishing  and a visit to Iguana island is a fun thing to do, as well is a lunch at the Conch Shack. Also a visit to Amanyara for a sunset was one of my favorites.

would you recommend to a friend?

Definitely YESSS!

guest post ~ marta

my cousin marta was in provo for a week, she is all into water sports; sailing, diving, kite surfing is her thing – so i was sure she would fit right in! she stayed for a week and brought our aunt mafalda and her cousin francisca – we had a fab time!

what do you think makes turks and caicos (providenciales) so special?

Its natural beauty is amazing! About the underwater world, I believe i’ll never forget the images i keep dreaming about. Then onshore, at every beach we went, there was always a new detail that took my breath away along with the mixtures of blues and greens of the water. It just feels like getting into the water right away- it’s paradise!

what were your favorite things to do whilst on island?

My number one thing was to go diving. It was my first time with sharks and turtles and it was an amazing experience! The reef walls and all the existing life along with the beautiful underwater gardens are just unforgettable! As a second point, I have to say I loved relaxing on the beach and go for a swim over and over again on those warm waters…

would you recommend to a friend?

I would definitely recommend to a friend specially to a diving fan that wants to relax in paradise! Thank you Joana and James for this amazing and unforgettable week! I had a really good time!!

clarissa and hayden are james’s friends from malta, they love diving as much as he does, so they came over to spend a week with us before the end of season – and they were our first guests at home!

what do you think makes turks and caicos (providenciales) so special?

Diving amongst the most varied marine life and different species that one can imagine! The sharks were a favourite of ours :-)

what were your favourite things to do whilst in the island?

Some of our favourite stuff was just walking along the endless white sandy beaches and swimming in that crystal clear turquoise water and spotting the sting ray & various fish & shells.

would you recommend to a friend?

We would definitely recommend Turks to our friends! It’s a lovely island with a really laid back feel and its a great place for one to unwind and relax! We can’t wait to come back :-)
